Princes, the UK’s leading canned fish brand, is launching its first UK tuna product in Tetra Pak cartons.

Princes Tuna Bites are available in three variants; in brine, sunflower oil and with sundried tomatoes, to cater for the growing consumer demand for healthy snacks.

The Tuna Bites will be the first tuna product available in Tetra Pak cartons in the UK, and the launch follows the success of similar products on the continent, supported by the continued growth of the savoury snack market, which rose by 8% in the UK in 2008 alone.

In looking at alternative packaging for the Tuna Bites range, Princes wanted to match the innovative nature of the product. Tetra Pak Recart cartons were chosen for being lightweight and space-efficient, making them easy to carry home from the supermarket and store in kitchen cupboards. The cartons are also re-sealable, which helps prolong the product’s shelf-life.

Ruth Simpson, marketing director for Princes Foods, said: "Currently more than 67% of tuna is eaten at home as part of a main meal. We’re confident that through new product packaging and innovation, we can encourage consumers to use tuna in new ways, and drive further value into the category.

"In recent in-home placement, the Tuna Bites were seen as a convenient, healthy snack, without compromising on taste or quality. We expect the versatility of the range, which can also be used in pasta bakes, salads and sandwiches, to prove popular with consumers."

Kevw - might be useful if you said where you got them from..
#6
What size (grams) are these?

To be this cheap are there lots of nasty ingredients added?
#7
bargain-I guess tesco are stopping stocking these then
#8
They should have been removed from the shelf and wasted - 1p is the final price point for discontinued product. Which is why you will not find it in most stores.

220g drained weight on pack

Ingredients on pack: tuna, sunflower oil, water & salt so no nasties unless you count salt which is 0.4g per 100g drained weight so less than 1g per pack which is pretty good.

Only the sunflower one was on offer the other two products were full price so not sure why this one alone is on offer but I have seen this with Tescos where they will reduce something to peanuts. I have just checked the expiry date which is 2012.

I love tuna but I've stopped buying it, at any price.

The seas are being hoovered clean and unless we stop it there will soon be a collapse of the ocean food chain & eco-system which may never recover (the Cod off the Canadian coast has never returned after it was fished to complete collapse.......and sadly no, the reduced fishing quotas the EU imposses are always far too high to make any major difference to our massively declined stocks

Tetra pak should be banned until every part of the country can recycle it.

That's just the minutia, the bigger picture is more demand (even on a dead line like this) encourages them to go get more stock (in Tescos case here of a different Tuna) & keeps the pressure on the oceans fish stocks.

Joking or not the fact is we're depleting the seas at an alarming rate & sooner rather than later we are going to get to a stage where fish stocks simply collapse - and as Canada's cod experience shows it's quite possible the stocks never recover.
Unless we drastically cut back now.
#26
Heat from me --its evolution to eat them as well --when they go extinct we will just find something else.

Why don't you buy all of the 1p tuna off the shelf, should only cost you a couple of quid, and throw them back in the sea?
